Dutch farm renovated

Big beautiful wooden beam chalet

Here are some pictures of an old farm renovated recently. I found the decoration interesting as it is very colorful. It contrasts the “grey” colors we often find now in modern decoration. And it is still a very relaxing peaceful place.

This old Dutch farmhouse was renovated by Larissa, an interior designer and her husband, Peter, project developer. Originally built in 1860, the farm now is the home of the couple and their 2 kids. While keeping the old character of the space, Larissa and Peter created intimacy and a cosy modern feel to their home.

French colorful chalet

Today we visit a chalet located in France in the valley of Chamonix. This chalet isn’t like any others, the interior decoration is full of colors and unexpected elements. Have a look !

Dans ce chalet, la décoration atypique comporte des éléments neufs comme des éléments anciens, du cher et du pas cher, et le tout s’accorde à la perfection (selon les goûts de chacun biensûr).

In this chalet, the atypicaldecoration includes new and old elements such as expensive and cheap furnitures, and everything fits perfectly together (according to the tastes of each other of course).

Let’s start by the terrace, the place that I prefer in this house. The charming mix of authentic material creates a cosy ambiance.

Then we enter in the kitchen and living area.

I personally prefer neutral colors for the interior design but I find interesting to see this mix of colorful elements, which works !

I really like the chimney shape and style !

The kitchen where a pattern is created with mosaic.

A little space for reading and quiet time.

The bedroom

And the bathroom

Voilà ! Imagine all of that with a view on Mt-Blanc ! What else do you need ?

I hope you liked it, if so, please LIKE or share !
